Downtown Franklin

Downtown Franklin

Welcome to Frothy Monkey!

At Frothy Monkey, we believe we are better together.
We’re Franklin’s local all-day cafe serving breakfast through dinner with a focus on community and genuine hospitality. Whether you’re our neighbor, or a visitor, we invite you to join us for a cup of coffee, brunch with friends, or to top off the day with dinner or a drink special. Through sustainably sourced coffee and ingredients, we aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment that can nourish our guests and our community relationships.

Downtown Franklin was the first Frothy Monkey outside of Nashville. With a wide wrap around porch and historic charm, we welcome a myriad of guests! Just steps from the main square of downtown Franklin, this location is a great stop for shoppers browsing local boutiques or concert goers headed to The Franklin Theater or Harlinsdale Farm (home of the Pilgrimage Festival).

The Story of Frothy’s Franklin Location
At Frothy Monkey, our goal is to always operate inside of buildings that have a history and warmth and are a part of the existing neighborhood. It’s not uncommon that we get the question, “What was this building originally?”

The Downtown Franklin Frothy Monkey is located inside of the former manse of the Historic Franklin Presbyterian Church. Because of the original intent of the building, you may see some unique features throughout the building like the original fireplace and repurposed doors. You’ll also see that most rooms are spacious and inviting, an ode to the community that was built in this neighborhood years before.
